Hurricane Florence’s only effect on the Fox Valley is going to be a week of warm weather, but warm wishes undoubtedly will flow back from our donors to storm victims in the Carolinas and surrounding states.
You can use reliable relief agencies like the American Red Cross or Salvation Army or work through a community foundation in the region. The following North Carolina community foundations have established special disaster relief funds and are accepting tax-deductible donations from the public.
Foundation for the Carolinas has created the Hurricane Florence Response Fund to support those affected by the unprecedented storm. Donations to the Fund will be directed to nonprofits in North and South Carolina providing relief to victims.
